Cubists are interested in Snails & they are eager to know about the learning & memory using Snails.
As we know, Eric R. Kandel got
The Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine 2000 for the discovery of concerning signal transduction in the nervous system.
He used slug as a model for understanding the function of neuron & here Cubists are using Snails in order to understand the learning & memory.

Today we conducted an experiment to check the feeding behavior of snail. We first made a circle of radius 29 cm and placed potatoes on the north side of the circle and tomatoes on the south side. We did this experiment eight times, but the result we got was that in both the times the snail neither moved towards the potato nor towards the tomato and they were moving in different directions.

We did another experiment. We made another circle and we placed another smell in it. We placed water drops on the north side of this circle and tomato slices on the south side. We placed the snail in the center. We did this process 9 times, but the result was that the snail neither moved towards the water nor towards the tomato slices and it moved in some other direction every time.
Today we did a new experiment, we made a circle of radius 26 cm, placed water drops in its North and South and placed the snail in the center and observed the snail. We found that the snail was moving in different directions.
Today we did a new second experiment, we made a circle of radius 26 cm, placed pieces of potato in its North, South, East and West and placed the snail in the center and observed the snail. We found that the snail is not moving in the direction of the potato. Was
